Walmart's Big Save Event aims to jump start the holiday shopping with Black Friday-like deals this month. This sale runs alongside this week's Amazon Prime Day online shopping celebration. 

So if you don't want to wait for Amazon's sale on October 13-14, sale, here's your chance to save early. Walmart's sale started Sunday, October 11 at 7 p.m. ET and runs through Thursday, Oct. 15. 

The sitewide sale offers discounts on some of today's best tech including laptops and tablets. Orders over $35 ship free and select products are eligible for free NextDay delivery. Walmart also offers contactless, curbside pickup from its nationwide Walmart and Neighborhood market stores.
